In this study, a Neural Network (NN) structure with tapped time delays and Mamdani’s fuzzy inference system (FIS) are used for the concentration estimation of the Acetone and Chloroform gases inside the sensor response time by using the transient sensor response. The Coated Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM) type sensor is used as gas sensors. The estimation results of Mamdani’s FIS are very closer to estimation results of ANN for the transient sensor response. Acceptable good performances are obtained for both systems and the appropriateness of the NN and FIS for the gas concentration determination inside the sensor response time is observed.
